Hello and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Anna Vass Schad. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, license# MH16585. I received my Bachelors degree from the University of Florida in 2003 and graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University with my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology in 2011. I completed my pre-graduate internship at the counseling center at Christ Fellowship where I had an opportunity to help people who were struggling with anxiety, depression, addictions, brain trauma, OCD, motherhood, family relationships, marriage, pre-marriage, eating disorders, trauma, and infidelity, among others. Since 2013, I have run a private practice in Palm Beach Gardens. I also assist other therapists with web marketing and research.
I am a strong believer in practicing what I preach. Through my personal experiences, including being a wife of eight years and a working mother of two, I personally have learned the importance of maintaining balance in life. I strive to maintain awareness of my thoughts and feelings, stay physically healthy, and trust God in all things. I may not share the same experiences as you, but I will work hard to obtain a thorough understanding of what you are going through in order to help you to the best of my ability.
Counseling techniques I utilize in my practice include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Christian/Biblical Counseling among others. I also teach relaxation techniques and focus on the importance of maintaining physical health with diet and exercise to obtain mental health.
I strive to create a comfortable, safe, judgement free zone...a place where you can share, gain a new understanding of yourself, and find the balance that is missing in your life. My goal is to help you escape the thoughts, behaviors, and patterns that are trapping you and find your way toward living the life you were meant to live.
